James scores 25 as Cavaliers rout Hornets 129-90



Posted Jan 24 2015 12:09AM

CLEVELAND (AP) The Cavaliers are back on their game.

LeBron James scored 25 points and Cleveland Cavaliers put on a dominant performance by routing the Charlotte Hornets 129-90 on Friday night for their fifth straight win.

The Cavaliers have been through their share of injuries and controversy this season, which has also featured an eight-game winning streak and a 1-9 stretch that preceded the current run.

"Right now, I feel like this is the team that I envisioned," James said. "This is the style of basketball I envisioned. Obviously the points we put up I don't envision that every night, but how we share the ball, how we defend, that should be our staple."

Charlotte coach Steve Clifford agreed.

"They were great," he said. "They're a championship caliber team and they played like it."

The Cavaliers, with an artful display of shooting and passing, had the home crowd on its feet throughout the game. Cleveland's 75-40 lead at halftime was its biggest in franchise history and the margin reached 49 points in the fourth quarter.

J.R. Smith scored 21 points on seven 3-pointers, and Kyrie Irving added 18 in Cleveland's biggest win of the season.

Cavaliers coach David Blatt took a realistic view after the lopsided win in which Cleveland scored a Quicken Loans Arena record for points in a regulation game.

"Let's not get ahead of ourselves," he said. "We've got a long way to go. I hope we can bring it again Sunday (against Oklahoma City), looking no further than that. We've got a lot of work ahead of us."

Charlotte had won eight of nine, but was no match for the Cavaliers, who have again looked like title contenders since James returned from an eight-game absence with knee and back injuries.

James added nine assists and six rebounds in a season-low 27 minutes. He was pulled late in the third quarter and didn't return. James is averaging 29.7 points and is shooting 51 percent in six games since his return.

Al Jefferson led Charlotte with 22 points while Michael Kidd-Gilchrist added 15.

Cleveland scored 14 straight points as part of a 24-4 run in the first half to put the game away early, leaving the rest of the night for open jumpers, fast breaks and dunks off alley-oop passes.

Leading 14-9, the Cavaliers went on a 14-0 run keyed by 3-pointers from Irving and Smith. James was fouled shooting a 3 and made all three free throws in addition to scoring on a finger roll and hitting a jumper.

James kept the Cavaliers rolling in the second quarter by hitting Timofey Mozgov with an alley-oop for a dunk, but the four-time MVP was just getting started.

James stole a pass in the frontcourt and drove in for a dunk for a 55-25 lead. Less than a minute later, he took a midcourt pass from Smith and dunked, which sent the crowd into a frenzy and extended the lead to 60-27.

James then hit Kevin Love with an alley-oop for a lay-in before Irving made another 3 for a 65-27 lead with 5:10 remaining before halftime.

Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert, who was out with a dislocated left shoulder, played for the first time since being acquired from New York on Jan. 5. He scored eight points in nine minutes.

Cleveland defeated Charlotte 97-88 on Dec. 15 after starting the game on a 21-0 run.

TIP-INS

Hornets: Jefferson and G Lance Stephenson came off the bench again Friday. Jefferson returned from a strained left groin three games ago, while Stephenson has played in five games since recovering from a pelvic strain. ... The Hornets were held to nine fast break points.

Cavaliers: Cleveland has won six in a row over the Hornets and James has won his last 20 matchups against Charlotte. ... Mozgov had a double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds. ... All 13 players scored for Cleveland.

NO PROBLEM

James wasn't upset that Golden State G Stephen Curry beat him out for the top spot in the fan voting for the All-Star Game.

"I'm just excited I get another opportunity to be a part of All-Star weekend, and my fans voted me in," he said. "It means a lot."

BAD NIGHT

Clifford got right to the point when assessing his team's performance. "We were terrible," he said. "We just didn't come to play. We weren't here. We need to play defense and rebound to win games. We didn't do any of that tonight."

UP NEXT

Hornets: Host New York on Saturday.

Cavaliers: Host Oklahoma City on Sunday.
